2023 Paving and Utility Work

One of the most important things for Council to consider before paving a street is the condition of the infrastructure under it. We don’t want to have to dig up brand new asphalt to repair broken mains. Therefore our underground Utility Work plan forms an important part of our Paving plan. We generally plan Utility Work a year or more ahead of Paving work on a particular road.

The map below shows the paving plan for 2023 as well as the underground Utility Work planned for 2023. For 2023, the city has committed $651,040 in paving work and $750,000 in Utility Work ($350,000 of the planned Utility Work has been carried forward from 2022).

Utility and Paving work generally starts in June of each year subject to the weather’s cooperation and contractor availability.

Hydrant Repair Work

We generally perform annual maintenance on hydrants throughout the city. While we anticipate minimal disruption to residents, some temporary water discoloration may occur when hydrants are flushed. Information on the work area for 2023 will be provided once the work is scheduled.

Annual Watermain Flushing Maintenance

We generally perform annual watermain flushing. This process will create very discolored water as built up sediment is removed from the water lines. Residents should be aware of the following:

  • Avoid doing laundry while your street is being flushed, as this process can cause laundry staining
  • Avoid using water while flushing is happening in your area, as this can draw the debris filled water into your hot water tank and lines in your house
  • Once flushing is done in your area, run a cold water tap until the line runs clear. If your water hasn't cleared after 10 minutes, contact City Hall with your address so we can follow up.
  • Flushing may cause temporary drops in water pressure. Minimizing water use where possible will help with pressure throughout the water system.
This work is done as part of our regular maintenance plan for our water lines, with a target of 1/3 of the water system per year.    
 For more information on this work, contact City Hall or the Public Works Department.
